Many people get their first jobs in high school. When writing an application, high schoolers may not have a lot of information to convey, but they can make a great impression by following the proper format
, which includes accurate margins and no spelling errors. Here are some things you put on a resume if you are still in high school. First, you need to broaden your definition of work experience. You may not have a formal job in your background, but you might have experience babysitting or volunteering at a local charity. Perhaps you have an unpaid internship under your belt. Someone who is in their 20s or 30s would not want to mention these kinds of odd jobs, but employers understand high schoolers will not have any formal experience. In addition to the work history section, you want to make sure you list enough transferrable skills. You want to show how the experience you do have relates to the job you want. For example, you can relate your experience babysitting and gaining the ability to multitask with how you will need to multitask all the time as a barista.
